Overview

Pro-Mark Japanese white oak drumsticks are balanced and carefully crafted using hand-selected white oak. Grown in the mountainous regions of Japan, this particular species of oak is a harder wood than hickory and will take more wear, tear, and punishment. It resists chipping and wearing soft. Made with Pro-Mark's exclusive Millennium II manufacturing process, each stick is hand-finished and hand-inspected. The result is a strength and durability no other stick can match.

  • Harder than hickory
  • Resists chipping

I've always been a big fan of pro-mark products. I use the nylon tipped 747 Rock sticks for most of my drumming needs. I had bought a set of the Japanese White Oak's and was very impressed, but when I went back to get more, all they had was American Hickory. I'm not a hard hitter, but the angle that I hit my hi-hats tend to chip and eat away my sticks. I broke three sets of the American Hickory sticks in one month, my Japanese Oaks have been going strong for 3-4 months. If you want a high quality stick that is not only going to last a long time, but sound great time and time again, go with the Japanese Oak.

I've been playing promark 5a oak nylon tips exclusively for maybe 15 years or so. Lately, I've noticed that they don't come "matched." That is to say, each stick has a slightly different fundamental pitch which in turn means rolls that don't sound as smooth as they could. For me, these are at a premium price point so the manufacturer should go through the effort of matching the pares. Isn't they why the come in sleeves of 2?

Other than the tone matching issue, the sticks are great. The have a feel that I love. The oak is a little heavier than the hickory, which I like. Even with the increased weight of oak, I'm able to exercise good dynamic control. If you use push/pull or Moeller technique, your playing may benifit from the increased weight of oak. After using literally 1000's of pairs of these, I've only had the nylon tip fail once and those were well used sticks. The oak is stronger that hickory from a durability standpoint. The denser wood of oak also means a higher fundamental pitch, especially on cymbals.

I hope that Promark gets themselves together with regards to the tone matching because otherwise, I've grown to really love these sticks for their feel and durability.

Stick to your stix!

By Warriorheartdrummer

from Downey, Ca

Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

I've been using these wonderful sticks for about 15 years now. Maybe longer, I can't remember. I only use the 5B with nylon tips. Seriously, you can't go wrong with oak. You get what you pay for in sticks. You want quality and endurance, right? I love these sticks to death and will always use them as my primary swords! Why do I love them? Simply because I can't break them. It's like 6 months or longer before I break one. They are so durable and long-lasting. You want a stick that endures your chops, rimshots, fills and solos, right? Well, look no further, you've met your match with this stick! Just add some dreaming, nitro, tight chops and you're ready to go! Believe me, I've tried the Tama, Ziljian and Regal tip sticks. I broke them all and snapped them like twigs. I wholeheartedly have put my faith into these sticks and will always be loyal to them till I die...enjoy!

Japan Oak and You

By Blakrob66

from Lubbock, Tx

Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

I've been playin for about 2 years now, which I know isn't as long as others, but I know a good stick when i hold it. Promark Japan Oak is THE BEST stick out there, it takes a beating, it feels more comfortable than Hickory, which in my opinion feels very dry and breaks easily. I've been told that I play with much aggression and Promark Japan Oak survives that aggression. I had one pair last me 6 MONTHS!!!!. thats a long time and finally on that 6 month one broke. Just one that to me is a great stick.

Rockin sticks!!!!!!!!!

By Drewseph

from Miami, Fl

Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

I use promark 747BN Japanese white oak sticks and they rock. Most other sticks taht are 16 3/4" long are usually really thick and heavy, these aren't they are very light weight qand i haven't had the tips break. I have npthing negative to say about these sticks. They do chip easily but they don't break. I used to use Vic Firth 5A's they would break after 4 days. These promark sticks however last me about a month. These sticks also feel amazing, you pick them up and they just feel right.

not the best

By drummer95010

from Santa Cruz, CA

Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

I bought 3 pair of the 2b nylon sticks and at first I was very pleased, but after 3 weeks I was out of sticks. Some of the tips fell off after playing fora couple hours. The wood did not chip at all which is great because you dont have to clean between the stands as often. I would reccomend vater sticks they seem to last a little longer.

Best Wooden Sticks!!

By Metallica Drummer

from Fremont, CA

Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

first of all, i thought i was a more zildjian stick guy. usually i would use the 5B nylon tips, tre cool signature, and vic firth 5B nylon. i wanted to try something new (considering my local store didnt carry the zildjian 5b nylons anymore, and the vic firth wasnt my favorite (but still good)), so i bought the 5B Nylon Tip Japanese Oak, and i am just HOOKED! they give me very very nice sound on the entire kit, cymbals and all, and they have very nice resistance to chipping, and i hit very hard. i believe im using pro mark from now on. BUY THESE AMAZING STICKS!

Best Stick I've Ever Used

By Kevin McGovern

from Allentown, PA

Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

I started on Firth, tried many brands of hickory sticks, all OK. Got a pair of these in a Jazz size one day on a whim. Love at first sight--they feel denser and stiffer in the hand than hickory right off. Made my earlier work seem almost tentative, the Oak gives you a real, authoritative strike. Because they are stiffer, they seem to me to be quicker on the rebound. Not that I'm any 6000 bpm ace, but I feel like I can do more with these on fills around the kit than I could before. I like the minimal finish they come with, though I have found a rubbing with 0000 steel wool seems to just break the finish, giving a "naked wood" feel to the sticks. Again, being an Oldies/Jazz guy, sweaty, blistering hands isn't a problem. But anyone wanting to try something different for their playing or sound should give the Pro-Mark Shira Kashi Oak sticks--in whatever size or tip--a try.

Don't be scared by the price, these sticks LAST

By liquidmetaltheater

from Shawnee,OK

Comments about PROMARK Japanese White Oak Drumsticks:

I LOVE these sticks. They're so durable, light and reliable. I had been using Vic Firth Nylon-tipped 5Bs for about four years and was continually frustrated by how quickly they broke. I then tried out Vater 5B Nylon tips. I felt like I was swinging a tree around. I mean, sure they were impossible to break, but I had never held a heavier 5B stick in my life. I sought for a lighter stick in Zildjian, but their sticks were even more likely to break than the Vic Firths I had been frustrated with. In fact, one of them broke in the MIDDLE of the first song I ever used them on! But then, I tried out Pro Mark's Japanese Oak. These sticks are the lightest, but toughest 5Bs I have ever used. I cannot imagine a better stick. Thanks to Pro-Mark for solving my stick delima.
